Ikea is 2 hours away from me too, but I find ways to get there, and even to bring home larger items. For example, sometimes I combine a trip with a friend who has a larger vehicle and split the gas cost. Ikea also delivers if you order online, so that may be an option too. Even if there's a delivery charge, it should be cheaper than renting a larger car for the day. A clean slate in a new home is a beautiful thing. I moved into a new home in 2013 and I'm still adjusting my hobby room. My big issue has been whether or not to make it a TF-focused room or a vintage video game focused room, since both compete for space as well as the room's theme. However, I have far more TF stuff, so that is what I'm focusing on right now. I have three more Detolfs to assemble!
